  • 2 cups uncooked pasta of your choice shell

For the sauce:

To cook pasta

  • Take a large saucepan and and cook pasta in boiling and salted water. When it is 80 % cooked sieve it drizzles some oil and set aside covered.

For the sauce

  • Heat oil and add garlic. Fry till aromatic and light brown then add onion. Fry for sometime till it becomes soft and pink. Then add chopped tomatoes and all ingredients except for cream and coriander.
  • Now add shredded chicken pieces and if you wish can add some vegetables (carrot, capsicum). Place the lid and cook for a minute. If the sauce sticks to the pan add some water in which pasta was cooked.
  • Just before serving, take a fresh nonstick pan. Heat some butter and add 2 tbsp of the cooked sauce with chicken. To this sauce add 1 serving size pasta (1/2 cup) and 2 tbsp of cream. Mix well and cook for few seconds on medium-high heat and serve immediately with chopped coriander.
  • Or you can skip step 4 and mix all the cooked pasta with sauce in the same pan, add cream and fresh coriander… cook for sometime and serve in a big platter or bowl.
